How to get more Apex Legends crafting materials using Lifeline

Lifeline mains can actually share the love when it comes to unearthing additional crafting materials by simply letting a teammate open her extended supply bins first.

When the addition of crafting was teased prior to the start of Season 6, some Apex Legends players worried that the game would follow in the footsteps of Fortnite. 


That, of course, hasn’t been the case – you won’t drop into World’s Edge or Kings Canyon and see someone cranking out 1×1 towers. Instead, the crafting is just an additional way to score loot. 

You open up supply bins and drain resources from the tanks that surround Replicators before using the big orange machines to get a new weapon, a hop-up, or even a new piece of armor. Though, if you’re playing as Lifeline, you have a great chance to share the love and help your team rack up even more crafting materials.

According to Redditor ToxicBooster, when it comes to Lifeline’s extended supply bins, the key thing to do is to let one of your teammates open the main compartment first. 

This will give them the usual five crafting materials, but then Lifeline still has the chance to open the secondary compartment. When she does, she will also receive five crafting materials. 

This means that instead of just getting five from either Lifeline or a teammate opening the extended supply bin, there are actually ten to go around provided that you open them in the right order.

Now, you can’t exactly drop crafting materials from your inventory and give them to a teammate, but it always helps to have a decent amount going spare.

By having a handful fo spare points, you can simply craft something your teammate needs and then later in the game, they can return the favor. It’s a win-win for all, as long as you remember to not just rush in and open the supply bins in a blind panic.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.


Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.


Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.


Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
